Legal reaction of society regarding juvenile delinquency is characterized by certain circumstances which are the result of the generally accepted view of children as perpetrators that still are not completely formed, socialized persons, and are with different biological and social characteristics when compared with adult criminals. Generally speaking, minors commit crimes because they are educationally neglected. That is the reason why they should be sanctioned by the use of educational measures, with the possibility of penal sanctioning using retribution in small number of cases. According to the above said, for years the legal status of minors, i.e. children in conflict with law, has been different from that of adult perpetrators in the Republic of Macedonia as well as in its neighboring countries. In the beginning, the difference of their status was in more lenient punishments, and later in the use of different sanctions for minors. Repressive elements are reduced with the use of measures directed to the minor’s development, rehabilitation and strengthening of factors in the controlled environment. The paper examines sanctions for children in the Republic of Macedonia, analyses their compliance with international documents, and of course the level of benefit from them in the area of reducing juvenile delinquency and recidivism among minors.
Keywords: child, crime, sanction, rehabilitation, recidivism.
